  1. I think now, of all times, no one will think that! Our church has been live streaming on Facebook. We're looking at moving to a different platform to protect private information once we can figure out the tech stuff. https://www.facebook.com/Victory-Baptist-Church-102473804729609/?__tn__=%2Cd%2CP-R&eid=ARD-UN6AIL-PmNxSWBgvikYLAGkpMScLM2anwjPgPl-TInp1dn6aMrxrGsN3tCTGrUBFrc0JIiYKGQrA Our Children's Church teacher has moved to Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEYuYLf7vqCGRcTH0b-a_Zw

    Social Distancing

    Tell me you’re joking...
  3. I'd be interested in the pattern for friends/family.
  4. I'm beyond caring about government mandated closures - I am increasingly thinking we should close (or meet outside - like Russian believers under Communism) for each other's safety. Actually - churches did that during the Spanish Influenza when they chose to shut the building doors!
  5. Not allowed, eh? That right there concerns me a whole lot more than any health danger. Our governments are using this as an excuse to test severe restriction of liberties, and the people are letting them.
  6. As far as I know, David Cloud is not on this site. You'll have to ask him yourself. /tongue-in-cheek Seriously, DaveW, let's give it a break on the whole defending-David-Cloud bit. No one's out to attack him. The church and the subject were brought up by another member; UkeMike is just continuing the discussion on tribulational doctrine in the churches. Can we focus on that, please?
  7. I took it the other way too. I've edited the post to say 'deleted comment' to remove future confusion.
  8. Good point... I saw the March dates and didn’t realize 2019 was last year already! My apologies for repeating a warning already given. I’m going to lock this thread so it can’t be resurrected again.
  9. Moderator me: Robycop, I will remind you that this is a KJV site, and that all members are asked to respect that when posting. In light of that, I feel that this entire thread is in bad taste. Tread cautiously. Me me: I don't think I'm 'KJVO' (because that view usually involves dual inspiration), but I am TRO. However, I am unaware of any modern translations that compare in quality and reliability. The 'updated' translations are based on faulty texts, with poor translation techniques (think dynamic equivalency) from far less learned scholars than were involved in the translation of
  10. Hard to pray when you're dead. The Bible says Jonah prayed 'out of the whale's belly'. If he was dead, wouldn't he have prayed 'out of Abraham's bosom' (like Lazarus)? I think the analogy here was to the 3 days/nights, not the actual death.
  11. I have to say that I'm not in favor of transposing music - in the long run, it prevents congregations from learning to sing in good, four-part harmony. This is because if you're trying to transpose a piece down so the melody is at the comfort level of a natural alto or bass, it becomes too low to actually sing alto or bass! There are also very, very few church musicians who can play harmony well while transposing - either you get sight readers (like me) who can't transpose on demand, or you get ear players who can transpose but don't actually get the correct harmonies (again, making it hard t
  12. Here's another IFB perspective: https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/what_about_ruckman.php https://www.wayoflife.org/database/ruckman.html
  13. It's not that your posts are sensitive, it's that they are weird and rude. You make up straw men - saying 'this is an issue' for things that simply aren't issues. It comes across more as a snide attack at churches and pastors than as sincere discussion. (And for anyone wondering why I seem to be referring to things they may not have seen, EMorales was formerly TheGloryLand on this site years ago.)
  14. I don't know that the world does expect it - I've never heard of such an expectation before. GloryLand, you're not going to start up again with a bunch of weird comments on pastors, are you?
  15. I’m not sure that anyone here has said anything about being the ‘only real Christians.’ That’s a straw man argument. The point of this thread is to discuss the doctrinal point is Calvinism and Arminianism, and whether either of them are doctrinally accurate.
  16. “Looking into Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith...” “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Also John 3:16; 6:35; 11:25-26. We are saved by faith in Jesus, specifically. Faith must have an object.
  17. Good for Britain. Why were the people bobbing in that video?
  18. Salt & Watermelon! No... wait... that's (surprisingly) actually pretty good!
  19. Before I answer that, I'd like to ask you a question to clarify yours. Can you tell me where in Scripture it says she was 'set apart' by God?
  20. To be honest, your writing sounds rather like you have been convinced of their doctrine. I'd encourage to you to look at their claims more critically and compare it to Scripture. Regarding the so-called passage about Peter (we're all saints in Christ, so it's silly to call him Saint Peter anymore than I'd call you Saint Angel), let's take a look at the passage in context. "When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jere
  21. Maybe you should avoid sharing links for a bit.
  22. Hi, TGL. Nice to have you back? As you know, this is a discussion forum, and the posting of links is generally discouraged in order to promote interaction between members. Just a reminder...
  23. it was good of you to warn them away from dangerous locations, and has nothing to do with chauvinism.... except in this case, you're behaving that way. The comments on their looks and your play on the word Mormon are downright rude. I think the Bible has something to say about that too...
  24. I completely agree with the point of what you’re saying. However, Namaan served a Gentile king in a foreign nation that neither served God nor honored His Laws. This was a different king and court than the one in dispute.
